If you have not yet discovered motorcycle instructor Bret Tkacs on youtube, do check him out.  He give great advice on how to get the most out of bikes like the GS and does it in a way that is enjoyable and completely relatable.  Bret Tkacs  https://brettkacs.com/learn-to-ride-at-home/.  I look forward to each of his new video postings and blog pieces.  My son and I were booked for an Edelweiss Bike tour in Iceland https://www.edelweissbike.com/en/ .  I had been posted there in the 1970's in the Navy and thought it would be fun to share it with him and see how much it had changed in 45 years.  With Covid, it looks like it may not be possible to get to Iceland in early July so have rebooked for 2022.  I have toured Great Britain by car many years ago but would like to come back and to a bike trip in Whales and Scotland.  My fathers ancestors were from Whales and my mothers up near the Scotland border.   :305:
